Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the next release?
    • When it is done.
  • How do I install on Linux?
    • Extract the linux tarball to a user writable location or chmod 777 in the desired location in order for the internal updater to be able to write to the "install location" when updating. Other than that it doesn't particularly matter where it is on the system. Though, one should not be relocating it on a regular basis.
      THIS IS NOT A PORTABLE INSTALL! The application data such as the profile will be stored in the current user's home directory.
  • Will there be a portable version?
    • No, not at this time.
  • Does Interlink support Lightning (Calendar extension)?
    • By popular demand it does now as of Version 7025.
  • The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000001d). Click OK to close the application.
    • Previous versions for 64bit Windows builds required you to have the AVX instruction set. If you are getting that error then it means you don't and will have to use the 32bit build. Though, you should update to the latest release.
  • The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.
    • Windows 10 users getting this error while trying to use the 64bit build should instead try the 32bit build if this is encountered. The exact cause of this is currently unknown but it may have something to do with hardware or drivers and their interaction with Hardware Acceleration or may indicate system file corruption or glitches in physical hardware. IF you encounter this on Windows 7 or 8.x or the 32bit build also fails, then please file an issue at the repository.
  • Does Interlink support Windows XP because there are XP builds elsehere?
    • No Binary Outcast (and by extension Unified XUL Platform) Project supports Windows XP.

      The builds you MAY find elsewhere are unofficial and these builds by third parties are not supported nor are representative of this or any other BinOC project.
  • My question/issue isn't listed here. Where can I ask/report it?
    • You may ask your question or report your issue via the Issue Tracker on the GitHub repository or via our IRC channel which you can find in the Interact section.
  • I thought version 7238 was going to be the last version that supported linux systems with glibc 2.17 to 2.27 for GTK3 builds?
    • It has been decided to hold off on new minimum requirement of glibc requirement of 2.28 or higher for GTK3 builds.

Release Notes

Version 7315

This is an important security and stability release.
  • Application Core:
    • Added Ekoru Search to built-in search plugins.
  • Calendar Extension:
    • No changes have been made.
  • MailNews Core:
    • Oauth2 support code has been refactored and updated to account for changes on applicable mail providers.

      NOTE: Due to these changes It has been observed that GMail IMAP accounts using OAuth2 might loose sync and remove the local copy of remote directories. It does not seem to affect the remote server (your email on GMail's site).

      You can try the two following options to resolve this issue:

      1. Downgrade Interlink and reaquire and reload the imap directory sync by checking for new mail with each account then try upgrading again
      2. Remove the GMail account(s) and re-add them using the Account Settings.

      IF this becomes a consistant problem, please file an issue at the repository or let us know at the IRC channel.
